Student Government and Participation

At Utrecht University, there are all kinds of places where you can think about education:

  • Programme Committee (OC): the quality of the education in your study programme
  • Faculty Council (FR): the faculty policy in the area of education, research, finances, personnel & organisation (together with the faculty board) 
  • The Board of Education Directors: educational matters and developments within the faculty. 
  • The University Council: UU policy in the field of education, research, finance, personnel & organisation (together with the UU Executive Board). 
  • Student Assessor: discussing new policy with the faculty board and the Executive Board. 
  • Departmental Assessor: checks the OC and the quality of education in a department and advises the board from a student perspective. 

There are different forms of participation: student participation, advice and participation. Participation is on the administrative side of the organisation, student participation on the controlling side and advisors are in between.
